Day Ten part two

The buzzer beeps, our gloves touch in respect. The dance begins, at first the 2 of us were content to use footwork to gauge ourselves. After a short time I went on the offensive, you've probably heard use the jab to set up everything in boxing. Well I stuck to the adage, and possibly landed a few of them. I had been taught a combination by jeff yesterday, and was working on throwing it during our time in the ring. I noticed myself throwing a jab, left hook, right but not continuing.

The combo goes like this jab, left hook, right, and a left hook to the body.

For some reason I froze a few times right after the left hook.

I remember opening ben's guard up a few times, one of the times his left hand dropped which allowed a vicious right hand to connect straight on his chin. I know I landed s ome good blows on my partner, and took a little as well.

At one point Ben had thrown some sort of straight punch to my chest that had landed right on my sternum, I remember at this point I had buckled under the impact. I went to my knees and rose up, Jeff comes over and starts a knockout count on me, I got a 4-count then he went through a referee's routine of checking the fighter.

Prior to the chest punch ben had landed some sort of strike that had rattled my brain a bit, after being struck I was waltzing around the ring. I remember Brad pulling me up to him, and was talking to me, he was asking me if I was ok. I was looking him dead on and told him a few times I was good. I remember him asking me if I was lying to him. No....I'm good I want this to go on.

A little while later the 2nd round had ended. This was the 1st true sparring session I've had in boxing.

I recovered for a little time, sat down and took water in.

Once I was good to go, I worked on bags for awhile.

After a bit, one of my friends derik a 215-pound guy asked me to spar with him light. he was wanting to work on defense, where he would avoid the strikes I threw. we went for about 4 rounds.
I had worked the combo jeff had taught me more, and was landing more effectively in the lighter setting. I landed some nice shots.

The final round we had together, I had pulled off a flurry of jabs and straight rights, that forced derik to cover up, I remember throwing about at least 2 dozen strikes straight into the face, some landed others just bounced off his gloves, at one point during the exchange I threw a heavy right hook that landed. I noticed immediately because I'd jammed my right thumb.

after the sparring with Derik, I watched the sparring that was going on in the ring.

At this point Jeff, our boxing coach had asked me to spar with him...he was probably joking and was asking me if I wanted to relax because I was tired...I told him i was game.

We started off, like ben and I did. I land a few strikes jeff lands 1-3 more, I move around or back.....pounce in land a few...he does the same. I know I landed a few nice right hands to the face. I do know I landed a few nice hooks to his body.

I guess I took one hell of a vicious right hand and didn't even budge. I guess I gave him a sledgehammer of a right hook to his body.

Brad had called me a bit afterwords, and was talking about the session with jeff. I guess in his opinion the vicious right hook I'd landed on jeff was the single most powerful blow in the match.

sorry for the delay here, I've had to take a little time to recollect what had gone on.

Day Eleven
I missed monday due to horrible spasms in my back, I figured after having 3 nasty attacks that a rest day was in order.

I got a call early wednesday morning, asking for help on a tub move, my coach jeff has a part-time business of moving hot-tubs. From 10-2:30 we were working with a hot-tub the guy's estimated at 1,500-2000+ pounds. There were four of us working with the monster. Got home around 3pm, I figured I'd take an hour nap then get food for the coming session, but the next thing I knew was it was mid-night.

I wore my oxygen mask for the run tonight, I don't necessarily know how long a lap is inside the gym...but I wore it for 10 then 5 off, I ended up going 3 cycles like this, and had 10-15 minutes left.
had a half-hour run to warm up, then yoga and circuit drills from a coach that comes in on fridays.
after the main workout for the night I focused on shadow work for nearly 45-minutes, then worked with one of the coaches on very light sparring.

Day Twelve

I went to 11 laps on and remained at 5 off tonight with the mask, I ended up with 3-sets of this, and had 15-laps without before we headed to the mats for the warmup routine.

got a PR on the pushups tonight of 96, and did 4x60 crunches tonight.

After this we did five 3-minute rounds of cardio drills, 30-second bursts in the rounds then a new exercise.

After the warmups we were split off in 2 groups I went with brad.

We worked 6 rounds of 3-minutes with 30-second brakes.
round 1, 1-2's as rapid as possible, running in place 1-2's, power strikes.
we did this style for 3 rounds.
the last half we started with burpees, the rapid 1-2's, and power-strikes.

I guess I did ok on the burpees, 12-14-19.

After this we did a cardio-circuit:
3-minute rounds: 1-minute rest.
1st part I held my arms out shoulder height my partner would use them as a point to duck under left-center-right.
x3
2nd we had to throw jabs only and the partner would evade.
x3
and 3rd "final" we did side to side jumps w/ feet together.
x3

Hey guys,

I'm sorry I missed posting 2 sessions.

I believe I hit 115 pushups and 300 some crunches during the 13th day.

I have been going strong through the hundred pushups since my 13th session of training.

I cannot remember any details about 14.

Day 15:
I came in extremely refreshed, I wasn't able to make monday or wednesday due to fatigue issues.

I hit 120 pushups & 400 crunches. we did 6 rounds of calisthenics.

10 rounds of free-work, I did 2-3 on a uppercut bag, I worked mainly 1-2's to the body. After that I spent the remainder of the time with a kid named ricky, I held a bag for him since I couldn't find any mitts to hold.

I worked combos with him.

After doing this with ricky, we watched 2 smaller guys spar a single round.

When that was over our strength and conditioning coach dan arrived.

He gave us a circuit:

a 15-yd ladder that we did a shuffle as quick and as accurate as possible, a criss-cross (hand over hand, and foot over foot) side walk, rolls, and then bag sprints (carrying a punching bag over a shoulder and running). I got through 6 cycles of this.

I was given the opportunity to spar again with Issiah tonight. We worked on finding each other out for about 30 seconds, I found a few shots with my jab, then backed him up somehow and found a home for a flurry of left and right hooks! I ended up landing about a dozen or more hooks! After that Issiah found a opening and got away and then pounced, he landed a few nice jabs that sent a stream of blood from my nose, in the mix there he landed a beautiful straight body shot. After the body shot my coach jeff called the round. Out of a 3-minute round we went 90-seconds.

New-Facility!

The last 2 nights I went to our new facility with 2 of our 3 captains, and the 2 coaches straight from work.

We assembled a 17 or 20 foot boxing ring and made our construction zone-happy looking gym ready for our first night this evening.

Over saturday/sunday I spent a total of 12-hours with the guys.

I'll give a small description of our layout:

glass window front, left wall will be bags, about 40 foot in there are two small office the left one is a small weight-room, the other is a general office to be.

Behind these two rooms is our grappling room it is just as it's about 20 foot by 40 I believe.

to the left and back about 40 are two bathrooms, a generator closet, sink/locker area. then to the right towards the front will be uppercut bags/speed.

Day 16

we have plenty of room to jog around our new building, it's about 150-200 foot long I think and about 50 foot wide maybe.

I didn't keep track but I will in the future to how many laps I make.

30 minute jog, 6x20 pushup & 6x 25 crunch circuit ( 3x25, 3x20/ 6x50) for me this evening.

after this we did four 5-minute rounds of calisthenics.

at this point, which I really enjoy is anyone under 17 went to the grappling room to work with jeff. Everyone else stayed in the boxing ring with Brad.

We worked 5-minute rounds.

Ball of feet shuffling around the inside of the ring one way then swapped. each 5-minutes per way.

then 2 rounds of this but throwing a jab each time you shuffled.

2 rounds where we broke in 2's two stayed in the ring. The 2 in the ring were in each diagonal corner and stepped towards the opposite throwing a "stepping-jab", then back to the original corner with a reverse jab and repeat.

when the 2 rounds were done we swapped. The other set who were outside of the ring were on our 2 bags that are up atm.

I fired a steady stream of 1-2....1-2 for the 10 minutes.

after this we worked 2 rounds of ducking and moving under our partner's arms, like a rope drill without the rope.

after the rope drill 2 rounds of 1-2 combos to a partner who would catch the jab then "answer the phone" like in jiu-jitsu and slip the right I guess.

at this point we were done conditioning for the evening.

We had one sparring bout this evening. I thought about going for a bout but was too gassed...damn I love brad!


There was a pullup station, and I went for burnout and came up with 9 full reps before failure. I consider that a hell of an accomplishment due to the fatigue and the fact that I haven't done the exercise.


Oh....side-note.

I have taken in 3-gallon of liquids today...about 2500 calories.

Day 17
half hour jog
6x20 pushup/ 5x 25 crunch for the warmup (I did 3x25 and 3x20/ 5x75)

brad did not show tonight, so the senior group worked on mitts for 45-minutes or so.

I Held mitts for ben and ricky G. this evening.

Before helping with the mitts I did 5x12 hanging knee raises.

After the general work, I did 5x15 hanging knee raises.

there was nothing real particular about tonight.

war

day 18
Got the 30-minute jog in.
got 5x25 pushups and 5x75 crunches during our warmup.
we did a 3-minute cycle x 5 rounds.
went with bobby an assistant coach and worked on mitt work.

I went for 2 sessions.

I went up against ricky one of the team-captains who is a left-handed fighter a southpaw. We went for 3-minutes. I noticed that I was up on the balls of my feet most of the night, which is what you want. I didn't take too many shots with ricky. We were real light if you want to describe it as such. We tied up 3-4 times, it was an interesting experience. In the old gym we never really tied up.

Right at the end of the night I had asked one of the hispanic fighters who boxes out of CW boxing in omaha to spar with me. His name is Arturo Commacho, who is 16 and maybe 140 pounds. I made sure to tell my coach "jeff" that I wanted 2 rounds.

I was not so lucky with Arturo comparatively to ricky in the respect that I blocked his strikes. I wasn't able to land near as efficiently as I had with ricky. I tried to dance more. 2nd round I landed a couple jabs. I know that I landed a few jabs, then I saw Arturo back up...I went in for a few hooks, some of them may have landed I'm not sure. I tied up with him several times. Arturo's experience paid off in the end during the 2nd round, he lit me up with jabs and rights. I was bloody right at the tail end of the 1st round. At the end of the 2nd I had blood all around my chin, mouth, and my right eye was encased in drying blood.

From what coach Jeff told me after going the 2 rounds with Arturo, he is an open fighter with more than 50 fights to his name.

I had no idea that I was so bloody, I knew I was tagged in the nose, but I never knew my face looked gruesome.

When I talked over the 2 rounds with coach, he was telling me when I get bloody and my face gets slathered with it that's why everyone is so concerned. All I know is God is taking care of me, if I am really hurt I'll take a breather.

private-session with jeff

day 19
I warmed up with a 30-minute jog.
the situps/pushups. 5x75 and 5x25.
then 10x20 hanging knees with 30-second breaks.

We worked on wrestling take downs and some clinch work.

An outside single swirl take-down as he called it.

Your rear foot would come near the heel of the front, then the front foot would go to the outside of their lead with the shin of your lead leg on the ground.

From here wrap underneath the leg with the lead hand, drive your head down and grasp the leg with your other hand.

From here step back with the lead and to the side and make a circle from left to right.


The other was a overhand and under-hook grapple.

My right hand would go over the shoulder and cusp the neck, my left hand would go under and grab the shoulder, and my head would drive into the side of the throat.

After dominating the position you drop the underhook and circle from left to right. When you do you are dragging him to the floor. When you are going down you are taking his back and are right in position to go for the rear-naked choke.

Because his hands are on the ground, shoot the left arm in for the choking arm...then release the right hand and sink the choke.

After drilling each of these take downs about 50 times each we went to the boxing ring put gloves on and worked on my footwork and head movement.

He was showing me direction changes, and how he was wanting me to move my upper body.

I guess I've held my upper body real rigid.

After a little bit he had me work on defensive striking with the movement.

I noticed I did better with avoiding the incoming strikes, and landed a few jabs first when he was coming in.

It ended up being a 2-hour session.

Day 20
Brad was at the gym tonight!

It got down to 5-degrees today, by the time I was at the gym it was 15.

I wore some pants, longsleeve, a sweatshirt, and cap. I have been wearing the long-sleeve shirt and a sweatshirt for the last week in general practice.

I got my mask out of the bag and put the last nozzle in, and was able to do 2 sets of 4 laps around the building.

After the resistance runs, I took it out and just kept my face warm. I had a hard time seeing the ground in front of me because the air I was sucking in fogged up the mask and it froze on the eye-pieces haha!

I went inside and they had about 5 minutes to go. So I had a good warmup.

We got our ritual done.
I did 4x28 pushup & 5x50 crunch tonight.

After this we did a 5 round circuit. spiderman pushup, mountain climbers, weighted shoulder holds (dead straight in front), fast feet in and out of a tire that's about 2-foot tall, 1-2's on strike pads, medicine ball slams, jump rope, medicine ball toss from a situp to partner across from ya.

Switch every 30-second.

After the circuits we did the same workout from day 16.

this time around the rounds were 5-minutes long.

I think we had 10 rounds, after getting through the ring work, shadowboxing for the rest of the time. I worked mostly on form on the BOB.

at the end of the night I pushed myself for a 12 count pushup ladder. It isn't high but I was at failure, so I'm moving up a bit.

Day 20
Dan made his first appearance in the new gym.

Got the run in, did about 15-minutes of jogging tonight.

The other half was spent on footwork in the ring. I did some work off the ropes.

Covering and fighting back with a right hook, left, right uppercut.

Uppercuts to the body.

A 90-degree switch, lead foot is the pivot point. When I made the switch i'd throw of a 1-2 then back off.

I did the switch then do a back peddle sprint to the center.

We did a whole bunch of stuff, tabata pushup for 20-second 10 off for 4-minutes, jumps with an emphasis on landing on the balls and then the heels, and then a partner drill (one person squats and cups the hands, the other grabs onto the cupped hands and pulls himself up.)

I didn't find the right way for the last drill.

After that we did a 4 point circuit: ladders of footwork, then focused jumps over bags, then a roll, then as he calls it animal crawls in the ring. we had 10 minutes of this.

After dan's circuit was over I worked on showing the basic technique to a new boxer. We worked for about half an hour.

After taking care of the new guy, I gloved up and went in the ring with Jeff.

We were focusing on my footwork as defense. I noticed I landed more effectively, and was dancing around him better.
